Human consciousness is on a self-destructive path putting humanity on a crash course with disaster of global proportions. More than a billion people are starving, floods and droughts threaten food supply around the world, current methods of mass food production are making us sick, there is worldwide economic meltdown and massive erosion in public trust, violence and war are a normal way of life, and our planet is ecologically imperiled. Given the dire nature of our current political, social, economic and technological trends, we must take action now if we wish to steer the course of humanity toward a better outcome.

We are all capable of so much more than we assume. We have an innate potential for wisdom, creativity, innovation, compassion, and selflessness. Yet most of us don’t fully access that potential.
These qualities come from the same place inside us. Not our brains, as most of us think, but rather from a special place in our hearts. Lotus of the Heart teaches us how to recognize and utilize our full potential, in order to find creative, compassionate, and innovative solutions to what ails our world today.
If we cling to what worked in the past, we will not survive the trials ahead. If we wish to both survive and prosper, we need to abandon attitudes, values, and beliefs that no longer serve our needs, and embrace new ideas and paradigms that can lead the way to an evolutionary and integral worldview.
In Lotus of the Heart, you will begin to understand the deep sources of your potential, creating new expectations for what life could be like, not only for yourself, but for all humans on this planet. When we discover and reconnect with the lotus of our heart, we unlock the mystery of who we are, what we are doing here, and what it truly means to be human. We move past the self-limiting, fragmented, materialistic and dualist worldviews that threaten our survival and we adopt a more cohesive, self-empowering and integral worldview. And when enough of us blossom in that way, together we can heal and transform the world.
This book will help you to find the lotus of your heart. It will show you why you don’t know you have this special place, and it will explain how this heart intelligence works. It will help you to embrace a new moral purpose, and to face the challenges of actually living this purpose. You’ll benefit from learning who you really are, and you’ll begin to see yourself and the world differently. You’ll begin to think differently and experience a renewed sense of urgency, compelling you to work collectively toward solving many of the complex issues facing our world today. In doing so, you’ll learn not only how to change yourself, but also how to jointly change the world and the course of history for all of humankind. We all have access to a tremendous potential. And once we reconnect to it, the implications for our human evolution are staggering.
